I Miss Planescape

All I can think of is that their battle cry must have been "Mike Wazowski!"

Elvithid

From Classics Mutliated
The Elvithid are a rare mutation of the aberrant species known as illithid (Mindflayer). Instead of preying on intellect, the Elvithid feast upon the creative talents of bards, troubadours and other performers. As they absorb more power, the larger and more garish their appearance. The most powerful will become bloated and sweating monsters, garbed in elaborate costumes of dyed leather (often humanoid in origin) bedecked in gems, tassels, ascots, half-capes and the terrible, terrible collars.

Bikini Ghoul

Bikini Ghouls are found on the beaches of underground seas, lunging in suplurous lagoons and swimming in warm, piranha invested rivers.

With their faces concealed and in dim light, their curvacious form may fool an adventurer a long way from the warm embrance of the desired sex. Though they do not speak, the may emmit an Aura of Seduction that requires a great willpower to overcome.

If some unfortunate soul falls under their power, they will drag him or her below the waters and drown them, feasting like sharks upon their still living flesh. They are not warriors however, and will quickly scatter or flee once they have their dinner, or are outnumbered.

Thermos of Holding

The Thermos of holding was created by an alchemist of the same name, who desired a his potions in one place.

After intense study, he created the thermos. The container will hold up to two two litres of any liquid. Then, once the lid is screwed on and removed, the liquid inside is gone. The liquid can be recalled at will, in its original consistence and temperature.

It is thought that Thermos died when he accidentally recalled a potion of decomposition instead of chicken soup. His creation was then claimed by the Guide of Alchemists, who attempted to replicate the device, to middling success. Numerous copies now exist, though many of them are not as sturdy or reliable as the original.

Bops

Bops are a magical creation similar to golemns or homunculi that were created by an ancient twisted sorcerer to serve as guards and watchmen over his lair and treasures.

After his death, a team of delvers sacked the lair and with heavy looses, finally defeated the guardians and then proceeded to loot the place clean.

That would have been the end of it, but during the looting, the party's mage found the sorcerer's spellbook. It contained instructions on how to create more of the insidious fiends.

The mage then made copies and sold the spell to other sorcerers and bopclowns spread, until they became the scourge to delvers that they are today.

Bops are usually deployed to guard or block access to specific areas, and can remain deflated and dormant for many centuries, long after their original purpose has long since eroded away. For that reason they can be found almost anywhere. When disturbed, they inflate with incredible speed, ready to block trespassers and would-be robbers.

Most are created with a password or are tuned to a biothaumatical signature that allows a person to step past the creatures without incident. Most bops do not attack directly, but anyone not cleared are simply blocked from moving forward. It is only when attacked that the construct displays its true powers.

Anytime the creature is attacked, it immediately responds with equal force back upon its attacker. The harder you hit it, the harder it responds. In addition, most are impervious to blunt weapons and many simply deflate if attacked from a distance. 

Rumours persist of a much more insidious version of the creature, captured here in a grainy iconograph found on the dessicated corpse of some unlucky adventurer.
